This is a nifty idea if you dont want to go through the expense and hassle of setting up a gas or propane stove to cook on. It is also a great idea if you want to do your cooking all natural. Or if you just want to try something a little bit different. This stove uses nothing but sticks for fuel. The sticks work because of the natural chimney effect created when the blocks are stacked just so. The air flow starts at the base of the fire and flows upward to force the flames to leap into action for you. Isnt science fun?

Take it to your next elk camp or boy scout camp and amaze everyone with your sciency know how. Four cinder blocks, a couple of sticks and a fire starter will have you cooking in no time. Have a happy cook out. Here are some other DIY stoves worth checking out.
